and even more cutting

I worked out the direction of the patterns so I could get a chevron at the underarm seam.

So hopefully it won't be difficult to get them when I sew.

and now I am planning out these fat quarters - most from Fair Trade Fabrics - to make a colour-blocked blouse. They cost a bit more, so I have been collecting them a couple at a time for a few years. I am not sure what shows they go to, but I usually find them at the Festival of Quilts.
The top one and the one at an angle were from somewhere else. So options are open for whether they will work best or if I will use the spotted turquoise remnants. (Seen on the upside down piece on the pattern layout in the top photo.)
